Stomper Tony alerted Stomp to an accident at the junction of Tuas Road and Tuas Avenue 5 today (May 19) at around 9.05am involving a tipper truck and a trailer.

In the photo Tony contributed, a tipper truck and a trailer carrying what appears to be metal frames can be seen blocking Tuas Road.

Said the Stomper:

"The road is a single-lane road and both vehicles tried to squeeze through.

"They were stuck side by side. The left side of the truck was dented and it looked quite badly damaged.

"The vehicles were stuck and it led to a massive traffic jam because vehicles couldn't pass. Many drivers who wanted to get to the Pan Island Expressway had to make a left turn and take another route."
